Krispy Date Nut Balls

This was a mid century cookie my Aunt Olga made for us. It’s one of my favs and requires no baking! Only a little stove top simmering! I double this recipe


  
  
I bought the “holiday” Rice Krispies this time!

In a small bowl beat 1 egg till thick and lemony

  
In a medium saucepan combine:
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup dark brown sugar 

Add egg and beat again

Stir in 8 ounces chopped dates. Bring to a boil. Then simmer 8 minutes or until thick and light colored

  
Cool 10 minutes

In a large bowl combine:
2 cups Rice Krispies
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Add date mixture to Rice Krispie mix and stir with a large spoon

  
Form into small balls and roll in granulated sugar. Voila!
